Norton Ghost does not need to be running for a
scheduled backup to start. After you define a backup, you can close
The computer that is being backed up must be turned
on and Windows must be started.
All defined backups are saved automatically so that
you can edit them or run them later.
Do not run a disk defragmentation program during a
backup. Doing so will significantly increase the time that it takes
to create the recovery point and might cause unexpected system
If you have two or more drives that are dependent on
each other, you should include both drives in the same backup. This
provides the safest protection.
Include multiple drives in the same defined backup
to reduce the total number of backups that must be run. Doing so
minimizes interruptions while you work.
Use the Progress and Performance feature to reduce
the impact of a backup on your computer's performance. For example,
if a scheduled backup starts while you are in the middle of a
presentation, you can slow down the backup to give more processing
resources back to your presentation program.
The power management features on a computer can
conflict with Norton Ghost during a backup.
For example, your computer
might be configured to go into hibernation mode after a period of
inactivity. You should consider turning off the power management
features during a scheduled backup.
If a backup is interrupted, consider running it
If you experience problems while creating a backup,
you may need to reboot the computer.
